Australia's women footballers will receive the same base pay as men from now on in a 1-year extension as a part of a collective bargaining agreement. Australia's W-League players will see their annual minimum remuneration hiked 33%, as their base hourly rate set to match men's A-League. It will reduce the gender pay gap in Australian football, but male players will bag more because of their greater time on the field.
